You have an 11 - We did not get idle hours. It is the only and I repeat Only shortcoming of the 2011, otherwise a superior vehicle to all other years. That is until I get another year.

I have zero issues doing burnouts in my 2011. I punched it going 40 mph in third gear yesterday and it broke the tires loose.
